  • ´More Stations. More Data. Better Forecasts.´ – the NYS Mesonet

    “More Stations. More Data. Better Forecasts.” – that’s the slogan of New York State Mesonet. The weather observation network consists of a total of 125 weather stations all over the state of New York and Lufft was selected as one of the vendors to support them in capturing the data. All 125 of the weathers stations have the standard instrumentation suite. Of those 125, 17 ...

  • Simultaneous determination of PM fractions, particle number and particle size distribution in high time resolution applying one and the same optical measurement technique

    Abstract The Fidas fine dust monitoring systems comprise an optical aerosol spectrometer, which is characterized by very good instrument characteristics, and utilize a sophisticated approach to convert the measured information on particle number and particle size into mass concentrations. As monitoring of PM requires reliable and quality-controlled performance of the measuring systems, ...

  • Indoor Air Quality Myths Debunked

    Today’s buildings, whether it is a home, office, manufacturing plant, hospital, etc., are more energy efficient; however, they also foster a potentially harmful environment. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) has become a rising concern in the HVAC industry. Poor IAQ can cause a number of health issues such as, allergies, dryness and irritation to the eyes, nose, throat, and skin. It can also cause ...

  • Multiple sensor fault detection and isolation of an air quality monitoring network using RBF-NLPCA model

    This paper presents a data-driven method based on non-linear principal component analysis to detect and isolate multiple sensor faults. The RBF-NLPCA model is obtained by combining a principal curve algorithm and two three-layer radial basis function (RBF) networks. The reconstruction approach for multiple sensors is proposed in the non-linear case and successfully applied for multiple sensor ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Double benefit of monitoring Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

    It is a difficult balance to save money and energy yet maintain a comfortable and healthy indoor air environment. A logical solution to controlling indoor air pollution is good ventilation coupled with IAQ monitoring using gas sensors. This can ensure healthy indoor air as well as a more efficient HVAC system.  Typical IAQ investigation and examination consists of taking single-point ...

  • Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide and Indoor Air Quality

    Chances are that unless you are hot or cold – or if you smell something funny – you probably never think about indoor air quality. However, scientists know that gases in the air that you cannot see or smell can still affect your health. Carbon Monoxide The most dangerous gas most of us will ever face is carbon monoxide (CO). Not normally occurring in nature, this ...

  • Observational needs for four-dimensional air quality characterization

    Surface-based monitoring programs provide the foundation for associating air pollution and causal effects in human health studies, and they support the development of air quality standards and the preparation of emission reduction strategies. While surface-oriented networks remain a key tool for addressing traditional single pollutant human exposure challenges, these networks in isolation are not ...

  • Multi-Stage Air Quality Monitoring in the Workplace

    CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the environmental datalogging solution for a factory with a small series of office rooms experiencing serious air quality issues. Employees reported headaches during the work day, indicating a possible lack of adequate ventilation. These workspaces were located next to the busy factory floor which caused an incidental ...

  • Quality compressed breathing air really is a matter of life and death

    When some of the Analox team visited West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service it became even more apparent how important it is to undertake accurate and consistent checks on breathing apparatus. We were shown training facilities where firefighters are put in real-life situations in order to equip them with the experience to deal with whatever ...

  • Intellisenc Building Air Quality Controllers control CO2, CO, VOC, O3, Humidity and temerpature.

    The quality of the air we breathe indoor (Indoor Air Quality, IAQ) is typically defined by the air chemical or gas composition and particulates. The sensors available today for sensing the gas composition of IAQ have many features and options. There is a wide application base for IAQ sensing with the most common being the regulation of HVAC ventilation systems for lower energy cost. Using an IAQ ...


  • Advanced Water Quality Techniques Course

    Abstract:The development of a strategic water quality monitoring program is based on prioritizing risks to public safety and economic reality. The development of global standardized methods and protocols for automated water quality monitoring would facilitate international communication of water quality information and comparison of standardized methods and protocols. The three primary methods ...


  • Instrument air case study

    Application Moisture is measured in instrument air to ensure that the air is properly dried. Problem Instrument air is used through-out a facility to protect delicate electronics, instruments, and to operate key process actuators. Many instruments also use instrument air to operate various pneumatic operators they might possess. Too frequently, there is ...

  • High-quality plastics from waste electrical equipment
